#MusicMonday – You’re driving me crazy…

Music Monday

It’s 4pm on Monday so that means one thing on A Knight’s Reads…it’s time for #MusicMonday hosted in conjunction with the sarcastic enigma himself Drew Weldon of The Tattooed Book Geek.

This week’s choice comes from a band I’ve liked since I was about 13/14 when they first came into the charts and I have vivid recollections of sitting down on the school netball courts when the PE teacher was late! This particular track of theirs brings back memories of being taught how to drum with my fingers on a table in Lancaster Uni’s nightclub, The Sugarhouse by the drummer of Malibu Stacey, a band from South London nearly 20 years ago…. Enjoy!

Laid by James

This bed is on fire
With passionate love
The neighbours complain about the noises above
But she only comes when she’s on top

My therapist said not to see you no more
She said you’re like a disease without any cure
She said I’m so obsessed that I’m becoming a bore, oh no
Ah, you think you’re so pretty

Caught your hand inside a till
Slammed your fingers in the door
Fought with kitchen knives and skewers
Dressed me up in women’s clothes
Messed around with gender roles
Dye my eyes and call me pretty

Moved out of the house, so you moved next door
I locked you out, you cut a hole in the wall
I found you sleeping next to me, I thought I was alone
You’re driving me crazy, when are you coming home
